The Italian Synchrotron Radiation Society (SILS),  and Elettra – Sincrotrone Trieste are proud to announce the 17th edition of the School

“Synchrotron Radiation: Fundamentals, Methods and Applications”

The 17th edition of the school will be held at Muggia (Italy) from the 16th to the 26th of September, 2024. Muggia is a lovely old town on the gulf of Trieste not far from Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste, a multidisciplinary international research center specialized in synchrotron and free-electron laser radiation and their applications in material and life sciences.

The school is dedicated to the memory of prof. Gilberto Vlaic, who founded in 1990 the first SILS school held in Sardinia that was followed by biannual editions. Prof. Vlaic was one of the pioneers of the X-ray absorption spectroscopy and contributed significantly to its development and its multiple applications.

The school is in presence, no on-line participation is foreseen.
